Overview

Introducing readers to basic physics in an accessible and meaningful manner that helps them realize the inherent importance of this useful science, Physics for Career Education, 7/e provides a solid foundation in physical concepts as applied to industrial-technical fields, with logically organized analyses of mechanics, matter and heat, wave motion and sound, electricity and magnetism, and light and modern physics. Enlightening and motivating readers with a healthy integration of real-world applications, it offers one of the most clearly written presentations available, presenting concepts in short, manageable sections with many graphics for visual support. It continues to feature extensive and superbly structured problems sets and examples, and now includes many new photos, greater clarity in discussions, and updated topical coverage. The volume covers all the physical physics concepts including measurement and the metric system, problem solving, vectors, motion, force, work and energy, rotational motion, machines, matter, fluids, temperature and heat transfer, properties of gases, wave motion and sound, basic electricity, magnetism, reflection and refraction. For those looking for a solid foundation in physics for technical and vocational fields.

My review of Physics for Career Education are not the best. I found to be MANY errors (typographic errors ) in the book. Much of it in the back of the book where the answers are.
